Following Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's high-profile split, folks may be wondering what's next for the power couple formerly known as TomKat. Wonder no more. Here's a rundown on the projects they're working on for your viewing pleasure.

Tom Cruise

OK, so "Rock of Ages" was a bit of a bomb. According to Box Office Mojo, the $75 million musical has earned only around $32 million at the domestic box office as of Friday. Cruise, who did earn strong marks for his role as rock god Stacee Jaxx, is returning to the action genre in his next several flicks.

First up, "Jack Reacher." This one has potential. Cruise plays the title character, a homicide investigator and an ex-Army MP major, who must either clear or condemn a man accused of multiple murders. The movie is based on characters created by suspense author Lee Child. Reacher has appeared in 16 novels that have sold tens of millions of copies, according to the Wall Street Journal. So, yeah -- the fan base is there.

But there is a potential problem. As the WSJ explains, Reacher is a strapping fellow, standing 6 feet 5 inches tall. While Cruise certainly possesses big star power, he is not the tallest dude in Hollywood. Most outlets, including IMDb, have him pegged at around 5 feet 7 inches tall. But Cruise has acknowledged that he doesn't quite match the character's description.  Entertainment Weekly reported that Cruise introduced footage from the film at Las Vegas' CinemaCon in April, saying "I'm obviously not 6-foot-5, like Jack Reacher... But Lee [Child] felt that I was the right guy to drive fast cars and kick the s--- out of people onscreen."

The director, Christopher McQuarrie, has some hits and misses under his belt. He won an Oscar for writing the acclaimed "The Usual Suspects," but also penned Cruise's 2008 box-office disappointment, "Valkyrie." You'll be able to see for yourself if Cruise can fit into the oversized boots of Jack Reacher this coming Tuesday, when the first trailer for the film debuts right here on Yahoo! Movies.

In 2013, Cruise will star in "Oblivion," in which he plays another dude named Jack. The postapocalyptic science-fiction flick is being directed by Joseph Kasinski, who helmed "Tron: Legacy." Deadline explains that Cruise will play an Earth-bound soldier, whose job is to repair drones that protect Earth's atmosphere. The film might be going after the hipster crowd with M83 providing the soundtrack. Barring any real-life apocalypse, expect "Oblivion" to hit theaters in April 2013.

Katie Holmes

Like her soon-to-be ex, Katie Holmes will be building up her career solo. And maybe that's a good thing. The "Dawson's Creek" alum's acting choices during her five-year marriage to Tom Cruise were lackluster at best and cringeworthy at worst. ("Jack and Jill," anyone?)

The 33-year-old has been filming a drama based on Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull," in an as-yet-untitled film written and directed by Christian Camargo. The movie also stars Jean Reno and William Hurt.

On a lighter note, Holmes has committed to the upcoming romantic comedy "Responsible Adults," which stars the hunky Chace Crawford, who realizes that his crush (played by Holmes) was actually his babysitter some 15 years ago.

But Holmes has her focus on more than movies. In June, she traveled to Beijing as the celebrity ambassador to China's Artistry on Ice, an ice-skating show that included Olympic skaters.

She has also indulged her love of fashion by starting her own premium line, Holmes and Yang, a joint collection between Holmes and stylist Jeanne Yang.

The mother of Suri Cruise told Style.com at the 2010 launch, "We just wanted to do comfortable clothes that you can wear going from a meeting to being a mom to going on a date." Good thinking, Katie.
